Bluestockings Bookstore is a bookstore, fair trade cafe, and activist center on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. They carry over 6000 titles on topics such as queer and gender studies, global capitalism, feminism, police and prisons, democracy studies, and black liberation. You can also find some good ‘ole smutty fiction. They also carry magazines, zines, journals, alternative menstrual products and other oddly hard-to-find good things.
They also host readings, workshops, performances, discussions and films almost every night. Please see the events calendar for details on upcoming events, and when visiting the store, take a look at the community bulletin board to learn about other events happening around the city.
Oh, and they run a cafe which is full of organic, vegan, fair trade goodness!
